DESCCO hosts trade scholarship event
HAMBURG, PA — DESCCO Design & Construction, Inc. hosted its 14th Annual Dwight E. Stoltzfus Memorial Trade Scholarship Event on at M&E Sporting Clays in Hamburg. The Sporting Clays Classic was held to benefit an endowed scholarship at PA College of Technology. The scholarship has been established in memory of Dwight E. Stoltzfus, founder of DESCCO Design & Construction. Dwight believed that education was essential to keeping a high standard of quality and excellence in the building trades. The purpose of the scholarship is to aid and encourage a young person to pursue further education in the trades. “Dwight held in high regard people that worked with their hands,” said Kay Stoltzfus of her late husband. “This scholarship is an appropriate way to imprint his standard of quality on the building trades that will last for generations to come.” Over the past 13 years, more than $90,000 has been contributed to the endowed scholarship fund. This year’s Sporting Clays Classic raised more than any other year, with a total of $17,000 being contributed to the scholarship.
